90s LEGO

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 07 2013 · 193 views

lego 90s 1990s blast from the past
I got a blast from the past tonight as I tidied up my room a bit, which meant taking the instructions from the recent LEGO sets I've gotten and putting them in the box with all my other instructions.
 
Normally that would just mean I'd toss them on top and move on, but the box was a mess. So I took everything out, arranged the instructions by paper size, and put them back in an orderly fashion that will leave room for more instructions throughout the year (but probably not much longer).
 
Whilst organizing, I quite enjoyed sifting through the instructions, with their pictures of the sets and the memories that came with. And a few "oh right, that was a set. And I had two because I really wanted those couple distinct pieces" moments.
 
Now, I had some cool sets since the new millennium, but the nostalgia factor kicked in as I kept finding instructions for sets from the 90s. Exploriens, Insectoids, Throwbots, Outback, Hydronauts--I even have the large plastic stringray I need to eventually fit into a MOC. Definitely some cool stuff there.
 
Maybe I'll even go back and rebuild a few of those sets.
 
-CF :kakama:
Fun fact: I do have an old 90s set still built. The Robo Raider, from Roboforce. That minifig is awesome, and considering I don't have anything older than recent stuff built, I never have the heart to take it apart.

Dude Robo Raider was AWESOME! It was a robot AND a raider! I mean what's not more bodacious than that!

I'll see your Robo Raider and raise you a ROBO RAPTOR.

 

Because that was seriously the best kit from all of the Roboforce.

I technically have a AquaShark sub on display, but the next oldest built set is a Bohrok.  But yeah the 90s sets were really awesome.

I so regret being born to late to appreciate the 90's Lego when it was released.

Janus, I'm real happy for you, and I'ma let you finish, but the Robo Master was the greatest Roboforce set of all time. OF ALL TIME.
